    My grandma, Cleo, made these brownies and I remember the day in her coffee smelling kitchen when she scrawled the recipe for me on a recipe card from her over flowing recipe box. She got it from her Mom and knew it by heart. I wonder who came up with this recipe? Anyone know the history?

    This is a 5 star recipe just the way it is.

    These are incredibly good!! I make two changes to the recipe. First, I make my brownies gluten free using Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix instead of flour. Lastly, I use a 4oz dark chocolate bar (Ghiradelli, 60-100% cacao) and melt it with the stick of butter with a double boiler on the stove. They are incredible. I usually top them with whipped cream and raspberries. Almost tastes like a chocolate cake.

    Just made these brownies and they're delish! (: They are lovely and gooey which i think is the best part of brownies. I might try them with a bar of chocolate next time (: Thanks for this recipe. x
